CAMDEN — Birder and columnist Don Reimer will lead a presentation titled “Summering with Vultures,” Tuesday, Feb. 18, at 12 p.m., at Merryspring Nature Center.
Maine’s turkey vulture population has expanded immensely since the state’s first nesting pair was discovered in the Camden Hills in 1982. Don Reimer will lead a pictorial portrait as a vulture pair raises two downy chicks from egg through fledged independence. The talk will trace detailed weekly progress at the nest site throughout the 2019 summer nesting season.

A Board Member of Midcoast Audubon, he has led field excursions for local environmental organizations and the American Birding Association National Convention. He is also a Board Member of the Friends of Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge, in Rockland, and has participated in many citizen science projects.
